Atlantic City Police Department

ATLANTIC CITY — Three teens from the resort were arrested Friday and charged in an armed robbery and shooting earlier this month, police said.

At 6:48 p.m. Nov. 2, officers responded to Ohio and Kuehnle avenues for a report of a man shot, police said. The victim, a 20-year-old Galloway Township resident, was with a friend in a car with three others, who stole the victim’s money and shot him before leaving the car, police said.

The release did not specify which of the three suspects shot the victim, but they are all charged with robbery, aggravated assault, unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and conspiracy.

The victim, who was not identified, was transported to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, City Campus. His injuries were not life-threatening, police said.

Dasheem Maldonado, 19, turned himself in to detectives at the Public Safety Building at 3 p.m. Friday, while two unidentified 16-year-olds were arrested by Officer Eric Evans in the 1100 block of Arctic Avenue at 9:18 p.m.

Maldonado was taken to the Atlantic County jail in Mays Landing, while the other two teens were taken to the Harborfields Juvenile Detention Facility in Egg Harbor City.
